Can someone who actually owns this laptop (not Dell) let us know if the fans are quiet?

Yes and no. There are different fan configurations you can choose from. The lowest setting is super quite. You can however go to the opposite extreme and put it into Performance cooling. This is much louder, but it is still half as load as my aging Alienware M17R2, so it will be a little relative to what you have grown accustom to with your current laptop.

Can i put a down payment if i choose to finance?

Yes, for more information, please contact the Dell financial services. Here is their contact info:
